And the south shall rise again? Send the army down there and clean em out once and for all. 

 

The army are too busy chasing the shin family and ensuring fair distribution of tbe newly filled troughs to protect the borders. Not much money to be made down there since the media exposed their people smugging operations.

 

What do you think the new subs will be used for. Sure as hell wont ever sèe combat.

This is a different army, and a different Police force in the south.

 

There are huge holes in the way they operate (such as abandoning checkpoints when it rains) and the night time belongs to the insurgents, the mornings to the osaw (private security forces employed by the goverment) and the later mornings to dusk belongs to the army and Police.

 

This is a war zone, and learnings should be made from how the US had to transition from white faces invading a country, to white faces working with local faces to achieve a better understanding and targeted results. Going house to house will not work in the south, only create more enemies where the 10% are living in fear of the 90%. We have had letters in our mail boxes in Yala saying they know we are Buddhists, and that if we do not leave we will be executed.

 

The army needs to be used to protect people in a smart way around the clock, and special task forces need to be used to minimise innocent victims and crush the insurgents.

Interesting how people squawk about putting an end to the Southern violence and terrorism in general. I have always wondered how one puts a stop to something that you can't see, hear or smell until it blows up in your face. Of course, by then, it's too late. Terrorism is here to stay.....Also interesting that you, elgordo38, assume the military knows exactly who these terrorists might be so they can be simply cleaned out....

Except that the Thai army has never protected the people. History will confirm the army, or any branch of the military has only ever been interested in protecting themselves, their interests and their people. 

 

They are lucky that border countries have rarely made any decent attempt to invade otherwise their lack of capabilities would be in full view. Just ask Japan. The military defended the country for about a day before retreating back to the barracks.

You raise a good point about the military but they must know something after all these years of killing and maiming people.
